A week after two banks were raided by robbers in Ijebu-Igbo and Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo, many banks in Ogun State are yet to resume for business.
Banks in Ijebu-Ode, Ikenne, Odogbolu, Ijebu-Mushin, Ago-Iwoye, Sagamu and Ogbere are still closed.
Residents have to travel to neigbouring towns, such as Ibadan, Ikorodu, Ikeja and Abeokuta, the state capital, for transactions.
Residents said the closure is affecting their businesses.
A civil servant, Mr. Ayodele Kayode, who spoke in Ijebu-Ode, described the situation as “annoying and embarrassing.”
Kayode said he could hardly provide for his family since the banks closed a week ago.
He said: “I have less than N200 and I need to buy food for my family, but I cannot access the small money I have in the bank.”
Mr. Banjo a business man and owner of T&D Telecomms Services wants the Governor of the state to urgently find a lasting solution to the problem. According to him the continue closure of the banks is affecting ordinary people of the state more.
